One step closer to reality. That’s where Ruston’s planned curbside recycling program is today, thanks to action taken by the Lincoln Parish Police Jury.
Jurors on Tuesday unanimously agreed to authorize Jury President Jody Backus to sign a cooperative endeavor with the city regarding operation of a recycling transfer station.
While that doesn’t sound particularly exciting, it is. The reason? The recycling program can’t begin without a transfer station. A transfer station is the facility in which collected recyclables are housed until enough are gathered to ship to a recycling center.
With the holidays steadily approaching, people are mentally preparing for the vast amount of food that is to be bought and cooked for their family celebrations. This is an exciting time of year, but there are some who can’t prepare for their holiday festivities because they aren’t sure if they are going to be able to afford food for this week.
